CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
A brutish man knoweth not - A man who is stupid, and who is like the beasts or brutes; that is, a man whose tastes and propensities are like the brutes, or who does not seem to act as if endowed with a rational nature. The idea evidently is, that there are many such people, and that it is not to be wondered at that they have no exalted idea of the greatness of God. As a matter of fact there are many in human form - many made in the image of God - who seem to have no more notion of God, and who see no more wisdom and goodness in his works, than the horse or the ox. Compare Isaiah 1:3.
Neither doth a fool understand this - A fool, in the sense that he has been made foolish and stupid by sin; that he does not worship and honor God. He has no right understanding in regard to the Maker and the Governor of the universe.

Thy testimonies, …
James Montgomery—Sacred Poems and Hymns
The LORD has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there are any who understand, Who seek after God.
For he sees that even wise men die; The stupid and the senseless alike perish And leave their wealth to others.
Then I was senseless and ignorant; I was like a beast before You.
Pay heed, you senseless among the people; And when will you understand, stupid ones?
Evil men do not understand justice, But those who seek the LORD understand all things.
